Happy June!! As we step into June, let’s capture the joy and make this month truly special. June is not only the start of summer but also my birthday month, and I want to share some words of encouragement and a call to action that I hope will inspire you.

Word of Encouragement

This month, I want to encourage you to embrace the things that bring you joy. Often, we let fear, doubt, or life’s busyness keep us from doing what we love. But June is the perfect time to break free from those barriers and fully immerse yourself in activities that light up your spirit.

Call to Action: Capture the Joy of June

  1. Share Your Joy: I was going to make this a personal challenge for myself, but my friend Shenell encouraged me to extend the love, so capture moments of joy this month and share them on social media with the hashtag #TheJoyOfJune, or write them in your journal. Reflecting on these moments can bring more positivity and gratitude into your life.
  2. Take a Bold Step: Do something you’ve been wanting to do but haven’t yet. Maybe it’s something you used to love or something you’ve been scared to try. Let me share a couple of personal examples:
    • Friends 30-Year Anniversary Outdoor Viewing: Yesterday, I saw an outdoor advertisement for Friends’ 30-year anniversary outdoor viewing. When I went to purchase a ticket, the event was sold out. For a moment, I was bummed because an outdoor theater and food truck experience was on my list for the Joy of June. But I felt a nudge in my spirit to send the company, StreetFood Cinema, a DM. And guess what? I got access and had an amazing time! I could have let fear keep me from reaching out, but what is fear?!
    • Indoor Cycling: I really love Spinning/Indoor Cycle classes. So much so that I got certified to teach during my downtime. Then the pandemic hit, the gym I was at was sold, and life went in so many different directions. But today, I am going to sign up for a gym that offers multiple spin classes and has a sauna. I’m rekindling that joy, and I encourage you to do the same.

Your Turn

This June, take a moment to think about what makes you happy. Is there something you’ve always wanted to try? Something you used to do but stopped? Or maybe something you’ve been scared to do? Go for it! Don’t let fear or hesitation hold you back. Share your experiences with us and inspire others to do the same.

Let’s make June a month filled with joy, courage, and new experiences. Remember, capturing and sharing these moments can amplify the joy not just for yourself but for those around you too.
